Sam Dyke Investigations

Over the last week, I’ve enjoyed reading Altered Life and The Private Lie, the first two books in the Sam Dyke Investigations series by Keith Dixon.

Sam’s a bit headstrong but he’s not one of those superhuman investigators you often encounter in thrillers. He’s got his human foibles. I like him as a character. I’m no so sure I’d like him as a partner.

Both books have intriguing plots, and the stories explore different aspects of relationships between people and between private detectives and the police.

The writing style is clear and easy to read. You also get a good sense of the place in which the stories are set.

I enjoyed both books.
